If I took the trouble to tell you, I doubt if you would understand. For the best part of a thousand years, in Britain (and to a lesser extent much of Europe) the majority of people have been able to live their lives in peace, protected by the rule of law and, if their abilities allowed and fortune smiled, to prosper materially and better their station in life. So far as the execution of law is concerned, you are apparently unaware that the torture of suspects had been prohibited by the sixteenth century.
I doubt if many people, given the choice of going back 300 years to become either an English artisan or an African savage, would choose the latter.
